Either that or 9Route.
Our TEs (and Noah Brown to an extent) are our fullbacks. One thing to keep in mind, if Alabama's LBs overcommit on the run by crashing down as you fear they're going to set themselves up to get hit with big plays, especially on cutbacks and misdirections. That's the beauty of the Meyer/Herman offense. It's geared to beat you no matter what the defense throws at you.
Brando is essentially the SEC's mouthpiece/jockstrap. Mark May wear's women's underwear. Big difference.
For a conference that is crapped on nationally, there sure are quite a few B1G assistants getting head coaching jobs elsewhere. I thought the B1G sucked? Their assistants cant possibly be that good can they?
The UC game was the first real test the secondary had this season and there were bound to be bumps along the way. If you noticed from that point forward when anyone threw a deep bomb there were always Buckeye DBs in the right spots. If anything that UC game was probably the best learning experience of the season for the defense for both Ash/Fickell and the players. From that point it was just a matter of repetition and mastering the schemes.
Hodge, I've always believed the Beatles' popularity, was mostly fueled by the fact there was nobody else like them at the time and the market (young teenagers emerging from the 50s) wanted more from their musical groups (hence the rise of groupies). Their early music was different but they marketed themselves really well. They were the first real "supergroup" in my mind just because they were the first band that really became worldwide instead of just in the US or in the UK.
I would say USA, un-objectively, just because we invented everything that the UK enhanced. We were there first and that is the truth.
I think the answer is neither are better because both are completely equal in that regard and both mean equally as much to music. Some of those musical comparisons are apples and oranges. Led Zeppelin and Metallica are two completely different bands. Elvis and Elton John aren't even in the same category musically. I think you'd be better suited comparing the country's body of work and effect on pop culture than you would comparing individual bands. The way I look at it is:
USA: Invented rock, blues, jazz, rap/hiphop, R&B, country/western, and most popular music you've heard for the last 60 years. Even an original like Elvis was inspired by the early blues and rock artists of the day including Chuck Berry and the 50's rock renaissance (Buddy Holly, Big Bopper, Jerry Lee Lewis) Johnny Cash was another original inspired partly by gospel and early country.
UK: Enhanced and improved upon the originals. Led Zeppelin was inspired by Elvis and American blues. The Beatles improved upon Elvis' star power to successfully market themselves into every household in both countries with music party inspired by bands like the Beach Boys. The Beatles invented the "supergroup" phenomenon. Black Sabbath did not invent rock but it did invent heavy metal/hard rock which inspired Metallica and every other hard rock band that's sprung up over the last 40 years.
The thing with the Raiders is that they're so desperate for a chance to return to legitimacy that they'd not only throw the bank at Harbaugh but they'd probably make him the co-GM with player personnel responsibilities. That kind of setting is VERY appealing to an ambitious coach. It's all about the power.
I agree Harbaugh's style might work better in college but even college-aged players have their limits. If he's overbearing and disrespectful that'll be an even bigger de-recruiter than losing.
Belichick doesn't have to yell because he has so much power and leeway with the front office that he can drop someone who doesn't perform or is a locker-room distraction. All he has to do is hold the possibility of unemployment over their heads.
Harbaugh's teams are always hard nosed. They're a reflection of his personality. I'm still puzzled as to why the 49ers would want to get rid of him considering they are only 2 years removed from a Super Bowl appearance. He would bring a read-option style of offense to AA with him and would probably recruit well though I doubt he will recruit as well as Urban Meyer does. What he will also do is motivate the players TTUN already has, one thing Hoke never could do.
I do NOT believe Harbaugh is as good a coach as Urban Meyer but I think he will make The Game more competitive.
I think Nuernberger's biggest problem this season is the fact he hasn't had as much game practice as most kickers do since we do go for it more on 4th down than most teams. He just needs more experience. No doubting his leg and talent, it's the accuracy he has to get down. By the time he's a senior I have no doubt he'll be one of our all-time greats. Besides, he's a true freshman. He's handled himself as well as he possibly could have so far.
